Cynthia Rowley-designed Band Aids for blisters and scrapes during NY Fashion Week.
With the island of Manhattan bursting with Fashion's Night Out happenings and parties then three hours later, the City of Angels unfurling a fury of parties and scenes with a very generous package of free parking, free tee-shirts, free nightclubs, free carnivals, free snacks, free cocktails, and free cupcakes, doing and covering Fashion's Night Out on both coasts, with the average count of three parties in one night, can be an exhausting night enjoying the festivities.
But, trying celebrating Fashion's Night Out then running the circuit of the entire New York Fashion Week for the next 6 days and nights. It is running a marathon in high heels with full makeup on. Something no professional athelete can never understand until toss into the mix.
Don't despair. The Arriviste is here...with fashionable appropriate kits and double-duty skincare that doesn't weigh you down, dashing from beauty happening to runway show, is a flash.
What's really great, these products shield, moisturize, and don't clog.
Designer Cynthia Rowley is now the reigning queen of fashionable function, from her cute but durable surfwear for surfer women, like herself, to thinking of designer diapers for hip moms to personally enduring the race of New York Fashion Week-wild-patterned band aids to cover those blisters and scrapes.
These special, limited-edition Band Aids can be purchase at her boutiques, online store, and the Cooper-Hewitt Museume. Every dollar goes to supporting art programs.
